Kenyans on Twitter are up in arms, but not in the way that some reports suggest. On Thursday, CNN aired a news package from Kenya's Rift Valley showing a handful of residents performing exercises in the bush with machetes and homemade guns.
While the region experienced some of Kenya's worst post-election violence in 2007, many online questioned the accuracy of the report. The government has ramped up security ahead of the vote and candidates have appeared in public service announcements urging Kenyans to allow courts to settle any election disputes.
